ORDER OF SERVICE

If The Minister shall say: 

IN the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the 
Holy Ghost. Amen. 

Beloved in the Lord! Let us draw near with a true 
heart, and confess our sins unto God our Father, beseech- 
ing Him, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to grant 
us forgiveness. 

Almighty God, our Maker and Redeemer, we poor sin- 
ners confess unto Thee, that we are by nature sinful and 
unclean, and that we have sinned against Thee by thought, 
word, and deed. Wherefore we flee for refuge to Thine 
infinite mercy, seeking and imploring Thy grace, for the 
sake of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

If All shall say with the Minister: 

OMOST merciful God, Who hast given Thine Only- 
begotten Son to die for us, have mercy upon us, and 
for His sake grant us remission of all our sins: and by 
Thy Holy Spirit increase in us true knowledge of Thee, 
and of Thy will, and true obedience to Thy Word, to the 
end that by Thy grace we may come to everlasting life* 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

1f The Minister shall say: 
ALMIGHTY God, our heavenly Father, hath had 
•**- mercy upon us, and hath given His Only Son to die 
for us, and for His sake forgiveth us all our sins. To them 
that believe on His Name, He giveth power to become 
the sons of God, and bestoweth upon them His Holy 
Spirit. He that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved. 
Grant this, O Lord, unto us all. Amen. 



A PSALM. 

11 The Gloria Patri shall be said after the Psalm. 
If The Minister shall say the following Prayer, or the Prayer 

of the Sfdxn/t. 

DLESSED Lord, Who hast caused all Holy Scriptures 
*-* to be written for our learning: Grant that we may 
in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly 
digest them, that by patience and comfort of Thy holy 
Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast the blessed 
hope of everlasting life, which Thou hast given us in our 
Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

HOLY SCRIPTURE. 

H All shall say the Apostles 1 Creed.

•*- heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ His only Son, 
our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of 
the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was 
crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The 
third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into 
heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father 
Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick 
and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Christian Church, 
the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The 
Resurrection of the body; And the Life everlasting. 
Amen.

Thy ministers, they may bear it according to Thy com- 
mandment, and lead our Nation in the way of righteous- 
ness. 

Let Thy protection be upon all those who are in the 
service of our Country, guarding them and us from all 
harm and danger of body and soul; sustain and comfort 
those at home in their hours of loneliness and anxiety; 
prepare the dying for death and the living for Thy ser- 
vice; give success to our arms on land and sea, and grant 
us and all nations a speedy, just and lasting peace, to the 
glory of Thy Name and the coming of Thy Kingdom; 
through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord. Amen. 

If Here may be said other Prayers. All shall say: 

OUR Father, Who art in heaven; Hallowed by Thy 
Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on 
earth, as it is in heaven; Give us this day our daily bread;

trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation;

the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

SELECTION OF PSALMS AND SCRIP- 
TURE PASSAGES 



Psalm 1. 

BLESSED is the man that walk- 
eth not in the counsel of the 
ungodly: nor standeth in the way 
of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat 
of the scornful. 

But his delight is in the law of 
the Lord: and in His law doth he 
meditate day and night. 

And he shall be like a tree plant- 
ed by the rivers of water: that 
bringeth forth his fruit in his 
season. 

His leaf also shall not wither: 
and whatsoever he doeth shall 
prosper. 

The ungodly are not so: but 
are like the chaff which the wind 
driveth away. 

Therefore the ungodly shall not 
.stand in the judgment: nor sinners 
in the congregation of the right- 
eous. 

For the Lord knoweth the way 
of the righteous: but the way of 
the ungodly shall perish. 

Psalm 19. 

THE heavens declare the glory of 
God: and the firmament shew- 
eth His handywork. 

Day unto day uttereth speech: 
and night unto night Bheweth 

knowledge. 
There is no speech nor language: 

where their voire is not heard. 

The law of the Lord is perfect. 
converting the soul: the testimony 

of the LORD if MIPS, making wise 
the simple. 

I he statutes of the Lord are 
right, rejoicing the heai I : the com- 



mandment of the LordIs pure, en- 
lightening the eyes. 

The fear of the Lord is clean, 
enduring forever: the judgments 
of the Lord are true and righteous 
altogether. 

More to be desired are they than 
gold, yea, than much fine gold: 
sweeter also than honey and the 
honeycomb. 

Moreover by them is Thy ser- 
vant warned: and in keeping of 
them there is great reward. 

Who can understand his errors: 
cleanse Thou me from secret faults. 

Keep back Thy servant also 
from presumptuous sins, let them 
not have dominion over me: then 
shall I be upright, and I shall be 
innocent from the great tr 
sion. 

Let the words of my mouth, and 
the meditation of my heart, he ac- 
ceptable in Thy sight: LORD, 
my Strength, and my Redeemer. 

Psalm 24. 

THE Lord is my Shepherd: I 
shall not want. 

He maketh me to lie down in 
green pastures: He leadeth me 
beside the still waters. 

He restoreth my soul: He lead- 
eth me in the paths of richtcous- 
ness for His Name's sake. 

Yea, though 1 walk through the 
valley of the shadow of death, I 

will fear no evil: for Thou art with 
me, Thy rod and Thy staff they 
comfort me. 

Thou preparesi a table before 

mi- in the presence of mine enemies: 



12 



Thou anoint est my head wit It oil, 
my cup runneth over. 

Surely goodness and mercy shall 
follow me all the days of my life: 
and I will dwell in the house of the 
Lord for ever. 

Psalm 24. 

THE earth is the Lord's, and the 
fulness thereof: the world, 
and they that dwell therein. 

For He hath founded it upon the 
seas: and established it upon the 
floods. 

Who shall ascend into the hill of 
the Lord: or who shall stand in 
His holy place? 

He that hath clean hands, and a 
pure heart: who hath not lifted up 
his soul unto vanity, nor sworn de- 
ceitfully. 

He shall receive the blessing 
from the Lord: and righteousness 
from the God of his salvation. 

This is the generation of them 
that seek Him: that seek thy face, 
O Jacob. 

Lift up your heads, O ye gates, 
and be ye lift up, ye everlasting 
doors: and the King of glory shall 
come in. 

Who is this King of glory: The 
Lord strong and mighty, the Lord 
mighty in battle. 

Lift up your heads, O ye gates, 
even lift them up, ye everlasting 
doors: and the King of glory shall 
come in. 

Who is this King of glory: The 
Lord of hosts, He is the King of 
glory. 

Psalm 32. 

BLESSED is he whose transgres- 
sion is forgiven: whose sin is 
covered. 

Blessed is the man unto whom 
the Lord imputeth not iniquity: 
and in whose spirit there is no 
guile. 

I acknowledged my sin unto 



'1 'hc(>: and mine iniquity have I 
not hid. 

I said, I will confess my trans- 
gressions unto the Lord: and 
Thou forgavest the iniquity of my 
sin. 

For this shall every one that is 
godly pray unto Thee in a time 
when Thou may est be found: sure- 
ly in the floods of great waters they 
shall not come nigh unto him. 

Thou art my hiding-place, Thou 
shalt preserve me from trouble: 
Thou shalt compass me about with 
songs of deliverance. 

I will instruct thee and teach 
thee in the way which thou shalt 
go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 

Many sorrows shall be to the 
wicked: but he that trusteth in the 
Lord, mercy shall compass him 
about. 

Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, 
ye righteous: and shout for joy, 
all ye that are upright in heart. 

Psalm 46. 

GOD is our Refuge and Strength: 
a very present help in trouble. 

Therefore will not we fear, 
though the earth be removed: and 
though the mountains be carried 
into the midst of the sea; 

Though the waters thereof roar 
and be troubled: though the 
mountains shake with the swelling 
thereof. 

There is a river, the streams 
whereof shall make glad the city 
of God: the holy place of the 
tabernacles of the Most High. ' 

God is in the midst of her, she 
shall not be moved: God shall 
help her, and that right early. 

The heathen raged, the king- 
doms were moved: He uttered His 
voice, the earth melted. 

The Lord of hosts is with us: 
the God of Jacob is our Refuge. 

Come, behold the works of the 
Lord: what desolations He hath 
made in the earth. 



13 



He maketh wars to oaSM unto 

the end of the earth: He breaketh 

the bow, and cutteth the spear in 
sunder, He burnetii the chariot in 
the fire. 

Be still, and Know that I am 
God: I will be exalted among the 
heathen, I will be exalted in the 
earth. 

The Lord of hosts is with us: 
the God of Jacob is our Refuge. 

Psalm 67. 

GOD be merciful unto us, and 
bless us: and cause His face to 
shine upon us. 

That Thy way may be known 
upon earth: Thy saving health 
among all nations. 

Let the people praise Thee, O 
God: let all the people praise Thee. 

let the nations be glad and 
sing for joy: for Thou shalt judge 
the people righteously, and govern 
the nations upon earth. 

Lei the people praise Thee, 
God: let all the people praise Thee. 

Then shall the earth yield her 
increase: and God, even our own 
God, shall bless us. 

God shall bless us: and all the 
ends of the earth shall fear Him. 

Psalm 91. 

HE that dwelleth in the secret 
place of the Most High: shall 
abide under the shadow of the Al- 
mighty. 

1 will say of the Lord, He is my 
Refuge and my Fortress: my God, 
in Him will I trust. 

Surely He shall deliver thee from 
the cnare of the fowler: and from 
the noisome pestilence. 

He shall cover thee with His 
feathers, and under His fringe 
shalt thou trust: His truth shall 
DC thy shield and buckler. 

Thou shall not D€ afraid for the 
terror by night: QOl fOI the arrow 

that flieth by day; 

Nor for the pestilence that walk- 



eth in darkness: nor for the de- 
struction that iraateifa at noonday. 

Because thou hast made the 
Lord, which is my Refuge: even 
the Most High, thy habitation; 

There shall no evil befall thee: 
neither shall any plague come nigh 
thy dwelling. 

For He shall nive His angels 
charge over thee: to keep thee in 
all thy ways. 

They shall bear thee up in their 
hands: lest thou dash thy foot 
against a stone. 

Thou shalt tread upon the lion 
and adder: the young lion and the 
dragon shalt thou trample under 
feet. 

Because he hath set his love 
upon Me, therefore will I deliver 
him: I will set him on high, be- 
cause he hath known My Name. 

He shall call upon Me, and I 
will answer him: I will be with him 
in trouble, I will deliver him, and 
honor him. 

With long life will I satisfy him: 
and show him My salvation. 

Psalm 100. 

MAKIv a joyful noise unto the 
Lord, all ye lands: serve the 
Lord with gladness, come before 
His presence with singing. 

Know ye that the Lord He is 
God: t is He that hath made us, 
and no we ourselves, we are His 
people, | id the sheep of His pas- 
ture. 

Enter into His gates with 
thanksgiving, and into His courts 
with praise: be thankiul unto 
Him, and bless His Name. 

For the Lord is good, His 
mercy is everlasting: and His 
truth endureth to all generations. 

Psalm 103. 

BLESS tin- Loud, my soul: 
and all that is within im . 
I lis holy Name. 



14 



Bless the Lord, O my soul: and 
forget not all His benefits; 

Who forgiveth all thine iniqui- 
ties: Who healeth all thy diseases; 

Who redeemeth thy life from 
destruction: Who crowneth thee 
with lovingkindness and tender 
mercies; 

Who satisfieth thy mouth with 
good things: so that thy youth is 
renewed like the eagle's. 

The Lord executeth righteous- 
ness and judgment: for all that 
are oppressed. 

The Lord is merciful and gra- 
cious: slow to anger, and plen- 
teous in mercy. 

He will not always chide: neither 
will He keep His anger for ever. 

He hath not dealt with us after 
our sins: nor rewarded us accord- 
ing to our iniquities. 

For as the heaven is high above 
the earth: so great is His mercy to- 
ward them that fear Him. 

As far as the east is from the 
west: so far hath He removed our 
transgressions from us. 

Like as a father pitieth his chil- 
dren: so the Lord pitieth them 
that fear Him. 

Bless the Lord, all His works in 
all places of His dominion: bless 
the Lord, O my soul. 

Psalm 107. 

OGIVE thanks unto the Lord, 
for He is good: for His mercy 
endureth forever. 

O that men would praise the 
Lord for His goodness: and for 
His wonderful works to the chil- 
dren of men. 

They that go down to the sea in 
ships: that do business in great 
waters; 

These sec the works of the Lord: 
and His wonders in the deep. 

For He commandeth and raiscth 
the stormy wind: which lifteth up 
the waves thereof. 

They mount up to the heavens, 



they go down again to the depths: 
their soul is melted because of 
trouble. 

They reel to and fro, and stag- 
ger like a drunken man: and are 
at their wit's end. 

Then they cry unto the Lord in 
their trouble: and He bringeth 
them out of their distresses. 

He maketh the storm a calm; so 
that the waves thereof are still. 

Then are they glad because they 
be quiet: so He bringeth them 
unto their desired haven. 

that men would praise the 
Lord for His goodness: and for 
His wonderful works to the chil- 
dren of men. 

Psalm 119. 

WHEREWITHAL shall a young 
man cleanse his way: by 
taking heed thereto according to 
Thy Word. 

With my whole heart have I 
sought Thee: O let me not wander 
from Thy commandments. 

Thy Word have I hid in mine 
heart: that I might not sin against 
Thee. 

Blessed art Thou, O Lord: 
teach me Thy statutes. 

With my lips have I declared: 
all the judgments of Thy mouth. 

1 have rejoiced in the way of 
Thy testimonies: as much as in 
all riches. 

I will meditate in Thy precepts: 
and have respect unto Thy ways. 

I will delight myself in Thy 
statutes: I will not forget Thy 
Word. 

Psalm 121. 

I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the 
hills: from whence cometh my 
help. 

My help cometh from the Lord: 
which made heaven and earth. 

He will not suffer thy foot to be 
moved: He that keepeth thee will 
not slumber. 



15 



Behold, He that keepeth Israel; 

shall neither slumber nor sleep. 

The Lord is thy keeper: the 
Lord is thy shade upon thy right 
hand. 

The sun shall not smite thee by 
day: nor the moon by night. 

The Lord shall preserve thee 
from all evil: He shall preserve 
thy soul. 

The Lord shall preserve thy 
going out and thy coming in: from 
this time forth, and even for ever- 
more. 

Psalm 130. 

OUT of the depths: have I cried 
unto Thee, O Lord. 

Lord, hear my voice: let Thine 
ears be attentive to the voice of my 
supplications. 

If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark 
iniquities: O Lord, who shall 
stand? 

But there is forgiveness with 
Thee: that Thou mayest be feared. 

I wait for the Lord, my soul 
doth wait: and in His Word do I 
hope. 

My soul waiteth for the Lord 
more than they that watch for the 
morning: I say, more than they 
that watch for the morning. 

Let Israel hope in the Lord, for 
with the Lord there is mercy : and 
with Him is plenteous redemp- 
tion. 

And He shall redeem Israel: 
from all his iniquities. 

Psalm 139. 

0LORD, Thou hast searched me, 
and known me: Thou knowest 
my downsitting and mine up- 
rising. Thou understandesl my 
thought afar off. 

Thou compassest my path and 
my lying down: and art ac- 
quainted with :ill my ways. 

For there is not a word in my 
tongue: but, l<», Loud, Thou 
knowest it altogether. 



Thou hast beset me behind and 
and laid Thine hand upon 
me. 

Such knowledge is too wonderful 
for me: it is high, I cannot attain 
unto it. 

Whither shall I go from Thy 
Spirit: or whither shall I flee from 
Thy presence? 

If I ascend up into heaven, Thou 
art there: if I make my bed in hell, 
behold, Thou art there. 

If I take the wings of the morn- 
ing: and dwell in the uttermost 
parts of the sea; 

Even there shall Thy hand lead 
me: and Thy right hand shall hold 
me. 

If I say, Surely the darkness 
shall cover me: even the night 
shall be light about me. 

Yea, the darkness hideth not 
from Thee, but the night shineth 
as the day: the darkness and the 
light are both alike to Thee. 

Search me, O God, and know my 
heart: try me, and know my 
thoughts, 

And see if there be any wicked 
way in me: and lead me in the 
way everlasting. 

Psalm 145. 

I WILL extol Thee, my God, O 
King: and I will bless Thy 
Name for ever and ever 

Every day will I bless Thee: 
and I will praise Thy Name for 
ever and ever. 

Great is the Lord, and greatly to 
be praised: and His great ne^ M 
unsearchable. 

One generation shall praise Thy 
works to another: and shall declare 
Thy mighty acts. 

I will speak of the glorious honor 
<>f Thy majesty: and of Thy won 

droufl works. 

And men shall Bpeak of the 

might of Th> terrible sol 
I will declare Thy greatness,

saith unto Peter, Simon, slecpest 
thou? couldest not thou watch one 
hour? Watch ye and pray, lest ye 
enter into temptation. The spirit 
truly is ready, but the flesh is 
weak. And again he went away, 
and prayed, and spake the same 
words. And when he returned, he 
found them asleep again, (for their 
eyes were heavy,) neither wist they 
what to answer him. And he com- 
eth the third time, and saith untf 
them, Sleep on now, and take your 
rest : it is enough, the hour is come ; 
behold, the Son of man is betrayed 
into the hands of sinners. 

John 19:16-19, 25-30. 



They shall abundantly utter the 
memory of Thy great goodness: 
and .-hall sing of Thy righteous- 
ness. 

The Lord is gracious, and full of 
compassion: slow to anger, and of 
great mercy. 

The Lord is good to all: and 
His tender mercies are over all 
His works. 

All Thy works shall praise Thee, 
OLord: and Thy saints shall bless 
Thee. 

Th«y shall speak of the glory of 
Thy kingdom: and talk of Thy 
power; 

To make known to the sons of 
men His mighty acts: and the 
glorious majesty of His kingdom. 

Thy kingdom is an everlasting FTHHEN delivered he him there- 
kingdom: and Thy dominion en- J. fore unto them to be crucified. 



dureth throughout all generations. 

The Lord upholdeth all that 
fall: and raiseth up all those that 
be bowed down. 

The eyes of all wait upon Thee: 
and Thou givest them their meat 
in due season. 

Thou openest Thine hand: and 
satisfiest the desire of every living 
thing. 

Mark 14:32-41. 

AND they came to a place which 
was named Gethsemane: and 
he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, 
while I shall pray. And he taketh 
with him Peter and James and 
John, and began to be sore amaz- 
ed, and to be very heavy; and 
Mkith unto them, My soul is ex- 
ceeding sorrowful unto death: 
tarry ye here, and watch. And he 
went forward a little, and fell on 
the ground, and prayed that, if it 
were possible, the hour might pass 
from him. And he said, Abba, 
Father, all things are possible unto 
thee; take away this cup from me: 
nevertheless not what I will, but 
what thou wilt. And he rometh, 
and findeth them sleeping, and 



And they took Jesus, and led him 
away. And he bearing his cross 
went forth into a place called the 
place of a skull, which is called 
in the Hebrew Golgotha: where 
they crucified him, and two other 
with him, on either side one, and 
Jesus in the midst. And Pilate 
wrote a title, and put it on the 
cross. And the writing was. 
JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE 
KING OF THE JEWS. Now 
there stood by the cross of Jesus 
his mother, and his mother's sister. 
Mary the w T ife of Cleophas, and 
Mary Magdalene. When Jesus 
therefore saw his mother, and the 
disciple standing by, whom he 
loved, he saith unto his mother, 
Woman, behold thy son! Then 
saith he to the disciple, Behold thy 
mother! And from that hour that 
disciple took her unto his own 
home. After this, Jesus know- 
ing that all things were now ac- 
complished, t hat the scripture 
might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 
Now there was set a vessel full of 
vinegar: and they filled a spunge 
with vinegar, and put it upon hys- 
sop, and put it to his mouth. 



17 



When Jesus therefore had received 

the vinegar, he said, It is finished: 
and he bowed hi.- head, and gave 
up the ghost. 

Matthew 28:1-8. 

IN the end of the sabbath, as it 
began to dawn toward the first 
day of the week, came Mary Mag- 
dalene and the other Mary to see 
the sepulchre. And, behold, there 
was a great earthquake: for the 
angel of the Lord descended from 
heaven, and came and rolled back 
the stone from the door, and sat 
upon it. His countenance was 
like lightning, and his raiment 
white as snow: and for fear of 
him the keepers did shake, and be- 
came as dead men. And the angel 
answered and said unto the women, 
Fear not ye: for I know that ye 
seek Jesus, which was crucified. 
He is not here: for he is risen, as 
he said. Come, see the place where 
the Lord lay. And go quickly, and 
tell his disciples that he is risen 
from the dead; and, behold, he go- 
eth before you into Galilee; there 
shall ye see him: lo, I have told 
you. And they departed quickly 
from the sepulchre with fear and 
great joy; and did run to bring his 
disciples word. 

John 3:16-21. 

FOR God so loved the world, 
that he gave his only begotten 
Son, that whosoever believeth in 
him should not perish, but have 
everlasting life. For God sent 
not his Son into the world to con- 
demn the world; but that the world 
through him might be saved. 
He that believeth on him is not 
condemned: but he that believeth 
not is condemned already, beeaUM 
he hath not believed in the name 

of the only be g otten Son of God. 

And this is the condemnation, 
that light is come into the world, 



and men loved darkness rather 
than light, because their deeds 
were evil. For every one that do- 
eth evil hateth the light, neither 
cometh to the light, lest his deeds 
should be reproved. But he that 
doeth truth cometh to the light, 
that his deeds may be made mani- 
fest, that they are wrought in God. 

Luke 15:11-24. 

AND he said, A certain man had 
two sons: and the younger of 
them said to his father, Father, 
give me the portion of goods that 
falleth to me. And he divided unto 
them his living. And not many 
days after the younger son gath- 
ered all together, and took his jour- 
ney into a far country, and there 
wasted his substance with riotous 
living. And when he had spent all, 
there arose a mighty famine in that 
land; and he began to be in want. 
And he went and joined himself to 
a citizen of that country; and he 
sent him into his fields to feed 
swine. And he would fain have 
filled his belly with the husks that 
the swine did cat; and no man gave 
unto him. And when he came to 
himself, he said, How many hired 
servants of my father's have bread 
enough and to spare, and I perish 
with hunger! I will arise and go to 
my father, and will say unto him, 
Father, I have sinned against hea- 
ven, and before thee, and am HO 
more worthy to be called thy son: 
make me as one of thy hired ser- 
vants. And he arose, and came to 
his father. But when he was yet 
a great way off, his father saw him, 
and had compassion, and ran, and 
fell on his neek, and kissed him. 
And the son said unto him, Father, 
I have .sinned against heaven, and 
in thy sijjht, and am no more wor- 
thy tO be railed thy son. Hut the 
father said to his servants, Bring 
forth the best robe, and put it on 



18 



him; and put a ring on his hand 
and shoes on his feet: and bring 
hither the fatted calf, and kill it; 
and let us eat, and be merry: for 
this my son was dead, and is alive 
again; he was lost, and is found. 

John 4:13-15, 20-24. 

JESUS answered and said unto 
her, Whosoever drinketh of this 
water shall thirst again: but who- 
soever drinketh of the water that 
I shall give him shall never thirst; 
but the water that I shall give him 
shall be in him a well of water 
springing up into everlasting life. 
The woman saith unto him, Sir, 
give me this water, that I thirst 
not, neither come hither to draw. 
Our fathers worshipped in this 
mountain; and ye say, that in 
Jerusalem is the place where men 
ought to worship. Jesus saith un- 
to her, Woman, believe me, the 
hour cometh, when ye shall neither 
in this mountain, nor yet at Jeru- 
salem, worship the Father. Ye 
worship ye know not what: we 
know what we worship : for salva- 
tion is of the Jews. . But the hour 
cometh, and now is, when the true 
worshippers shall worship the 
Father in spirit and in truth: for 
the Father seeketh such to worship 
him. God is a Spirit: and they 
that worship him must worship 
him in spirit and in truth. 

Matt. 25:14-30. 

FOR the kingdom of heaven is as 
a man travelling into a far coun- 
try, who called his own servants, 
and delivered unto them his goods. 
And unto one he gave five talents, 
to another two, and to another one; 
to every man according to his sev- 
eral ability; and straightway took 
his journey. Then he that had re- 
ceived the five talents went and 
traded with the same, and made 
them other five talents. And like- 



wise he that had received two, he 
also gained other two. But he 
that had received one went and 
digged in the earth, and hid his 
lord's money. After a long time 
the lord of those servants cometh, 
and reckoneth with them. And so 
he that had received five talents 
came^and brought other five tal- 
ents, saying, Lord, thou deliver- 
edst unto me five talents: behold, 
I have gained beside them five 
talents more. His lord said unto 
him, Well done, thou good and 
faithful servant: thou hast been 
faithful over a few things, I will 
make thee ruler over many things: 
enter thou into the joy of thy 
lord. He also that had received 
two talents came and said, Lord 
thou deliveredst unto me two 
talents: behold, I have gained two 
other talents beside them. His 
lord said unto him, Well done, 
good and faithful servant; thou 
hast been faithful over a few 
things, I will make thee ruler over 
many things: enter thou into the 
joy of thy lord. Then he which 
had received the one talent came 
and said, Lord, I knew thee that 
thou art an hard man, reaping 
where thou hast not sown, and 
gathering where thou hast not 
strawed: and I was afraid, and 
went and hid thy talent in the 
earth: lo, there thou hast that is 
thine. His lord answered and said 
unto him, Thou wicked and sloth- 
ful servant, thou knewest that 1 
reap where I sowed not, and gather 
where I have not strawed: thou 
oughtest therefore to have put my 
money to the exchangers, and then 
at my coming I should have received 
mine own with usury. Take there- 
fore the talent from him, and give 
it unto him which hath ten talents. 
For unto every one that hath shall 
be given, and he shall have abun- 
dance: but from him that hath not 
shaU be taken away even that 



X9 



which be hath. Ami east ye the 
unprofitable servant into outer 

darkness: there shall be creeping 
and gnashing of teeth. 

John 5:24-30, 39. 

VERILY, verily, I say unto you, 
He that heareth my word, and 
believeth on him that sent me, 
hath everlasting life, and shall not 
come into condemnation; but is 
passed from death unto life. Verily, 
verily, 1 Bay unto you, The hour is 
coming, and now is, when the dead 
shall hear the voice of the Son of 
Cod: and they that hear shall live. 
For as the Father hath life in him- 
self; so hath he given to the Son 
to have life in himself; and hath 
given him authority to execute 
judgment also, because he is the 
Son of man. Marvel not at this: 
for the hour is coming, in the which 
all thai are in the graves shall hear 
his voice, and shall come forth; 
they that have done good, unto 
the resurrection of life; and they 
that have done evil, unto the resur- 
rection of damnation. I can of 
mine own self do nothing: as 1 
hear, I judge: and my judgment is 
just; because I seek not mine own 
will, but the will of the Father 
which hath sent me. Search the 
scriptures; for in them ye think ye 
have eternal life: and they are 
they which testify of me. 

John 11:21-27, 41-1 I. 

THEN said Martha unto Jesus. 
Lord, if thou hadst been here, 
my brother had not died; but I 

know, that even now, whatsoever 

thou wilt ask oi ( tod, ( tod will give 

it thee. Jesus Baith unto her, Thy 

brother shall rise again. Martha 
saith unto him, 1 know that he 

■hall us*- again in the resurrection 
at the last day. Jesus laid unto 
her, I am the resurrection, and 

the lite: he that believeth in me, 



though he were dead, yet shall he 
live: and whosoever hveth and 

believeth in me shall new-r die. 
Better est thou this? She saith un- 
to him, Yea, Lord: I believe that 
thou art the Christ, the Son of God, 
which should come into the world. 
Then they took away the stone 
from the place where the dead w a- 
laid. And Jesus lifted up hi 
and said, Father, I thank thee that 
thou hast heard me. And 1 knew 
that thou nearest me always: but 

because of the people which stand 
by 1 said it, that they may believe 
that thou hast sent me. And when 
he thus had spoken, he cried with a 
loud voice, Lazarus, come forth 
And he that was dead came forth, 
bound hand and foot with grave- 
clothes: and his face was bound 
about with a napkin. Jesus saith 
unto them, Loose him, and let him 

go. 

John 14:1-G, 12-21. 

LET not your heart be troubled: 
ye believe in God, believe also 
in me. In my Father's house are 
many mansions: it it were not so, 
I would have told you. I go to pre- 
pare a place for you. And it 1 go 
and prepare a place for you. I will 
come again, and receive you unto 
myself; thai where I am, there ye 
may be also. And whither I go ye 
know, and the way ye know. 
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we 
know not whither thou gOCSt; and 
how can we know the way'.' JeSUfl 
saith unto him, I am the way, the 
truth, and the life: no man cometh 
unto the Father, but by me. 

Verily, verily, I Bay unto you, He 
that believeth on me, the works 

that I do Shall he do also; and 

greater worki than these shall he 

do; because I go unto my Father. 
And wh ball ask in my 

name, that R ill 1 do, that the 1 a 

thei ma. be glorified in the Son. 

If ye shall ask any thing in my 



20 



name, I will do it. If ye love mo, 
keep my commandments. And 1 

will pray the Father, and he shall 
give you another Comforter, that 
he may abide with you for ever; 
even the Spirit of truth; whom the 
world cannot receive, because it 
seeth him not, neither knoweth 
him: but ye know him; for he 
dwelleth with you, and shall be in 
you. I will not leave you com- 
fortless: I will come to you. Yet 
a little while, and the world seeth 
me no more; but ye see me: be- 
cause I live, ye shall live also. At 
that day ye shall know that I am 
in my Father, and ye in me, and I 
in you. He that hath my com- 
mandments, and keepeth them, he 
it is that loveth me: and he that 
loveth me shall be loved of my 
Father, and I will love him, and 
will manifest myself to him.

John 21:15-17. 
O when they had dined, Jesus 
saith to Simon Peter, Simon, 
son of Jonas, loveat thou me more 
than these? He saith unto him, 
Yea, Lord: thou knowest that I 
love thee. Ho saith unto him, 
Feed my lambs. He saith to him 
again the second time, Simon, son 
of Jonas, lovest thou me? He 
saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou 
baowestthal I love thee. Hesaith 
unto him, Feed my sheep. He 
saith unto him the third time, 
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou 
me? Peter was grieved because 
he said unto him the third time, 
Lovest thou me? And he said 
unto him, Lord, thou knowest all 
things; thou knowest that I love 
thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed 
rny Bheep. 

1 Cor. 1-13. 

THOUGH I speak with the 
tongues of men and of angels, 
and have not charity, I am be- 



come as sounding brass, or a 
tinkling cymbal. And though I 
have the gift of prophecy, and un- 
derstand all mysteries, and all 
knowledge; and though I have all 
faith, so A that I could remove 
mountains, and have not charity, 
I am nothing. And though I be- 
stow all my goods to feed the poor, 
and though I give my body to be 
burned, and have not charity, it 
profiteth me nothing. Charity 
suffereth long, and is kind; charity 
envieth not; charity vaunteth not 
itself, is not puffed up, doth not 
behave itself unseemly, seeketh 
not her own, is not easily pro- 
voked, thinketh no evil; rejoic- 
eth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth 
in the truth; beareth all things, 
believeth all things, hopeth all 
things, endureth all things. Char- 
ity never faileth: but whether 
there be prophecies, they shall fail; 
whether there^be tongues, theyshall 
cease; whether there be knowledge, 
it shall vanish away. For we know 
in part, and we prophesy in part. 
But when that which is perfect is 
come, then that which is in part 
shall be done away. When I waa 
a child, I spake as a child, I under- 
stood as a child, I thought as a 
child: but when I became a man, 
I put away childish things. Foi 
now we see through a glass, darkly; 
but then face to face: now I know 
in part; but then shall I know even 
as also I am known. And now 
abideth faith, hope, charity, these 
three; but the greatest of these is 
charity. 



Rom. 8:31-30 

IF God be for us, who can be 
against us? He that spared not 
his own Son, but delivered him up 
for us all, how shall he not with 
him also freely give us all things? 
Who shall lay any thing to the 
charge of God's elect? It is God 



21 



that justifieth. Who is he that as sheep for the slaughter. Nay* 

oondemneth? It ia Christ that in all these things ire art- mure 

died, yea rather, that is risen than conquerors through him that 

again, who is even at the right loved us. For I am persuaded, 

hand of God, who also maketh in- that neither death, nor life, nor 

tercession for us. Who shall angels, nor principalities, nor 

separate us from the love of Christ? powers, nor things present, nor 

shall tribulation, or distress, or things to come, nor height, nor 

persecution, or famine, or naked- depth, nor any other cTcature, 

ness, or peril, or sword? As it is shall be able to separate us from 

written, For thy sake we are killed the love of God, which is in Christ 

all the day long; we are accounted Jesus our Lord.

ORDER FOR THE RURIAL OF THE DEAD 

f In the absence of a Chaplain or Minister this Order may be used by any 
Christiaji man. It may be abbreviated as necessity requires. 

Tf A Hymn may be sung. 

Chaplain: 

IN the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. 
Amen. 

I HEARD a voice from heaven saying unto ine, Write, Blessed are 
the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the 
Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow 
them. 

Or: 

I HAVE fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept 
the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteous- 
ness, which the Lord, the righteous judge shall give me at that day; 
and not to me only but to all those that love His appearing. 

Or: 

ALL flesh is grass and all the goodliness thereof as the flower of the 
field: the grass withcreth, the flower fadeth, but the word of our 
God shall stand forever. 

Psalm. 

If Psalm 23, or other suitable Psalm may be read. 

Lesson. 

1f One or more of the following passages of Holy Scripture may be read, or 

instead thereof, I Cor. 15 : 20-26; 51-57; John 11 : 25-27; 1U : 1-6; 

Rom. 8 : 35-89; I Pet. 1 : 3-9. 

I Thess. 4:14, 18. 

FOR if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also 
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. Wherefore comfort 
one another with these words. 

John 5:24, 25. 

VERILY, verily I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and be- 
lieveth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not 
come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, 
verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead 
shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. 

Rev. 21:3, 4. 

AND I heard a great voice out of heaven .saying, Behold, the taber- 
nacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they 
shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be 
no more death, neither sorrow, nnr crying, neither shall there be any 
more pain: for the former things arc passed away.

GREEN HILL. C. M. 




Lent. 

THERE is a green hill far away, 
Outside a city wall, 
Where the dear Lord was crucified, 
Who died to save us all. 

2 We may not know, we cannot tell, 

What pains He had to bear; 
But we believe it was for us 
He hung and suffered there. 

3 He died that we might be forgiven, 

He died to make us good, 
That we might go at last to heaven, 
Saved by His precious Blood. 

4 There was no other good enough 

To pay the price of sin; 
He only could unlock the gate 
Of heaven, and let us in. 

fi O, dearly, dearly has He loved, 
And we must love Him too, 
And trust in His redeeming Blood, 
And try His works to do.

SACRED Head, now wounded, 
With grief and shame weighed down, 
Now scornfully surrounded 

With thorns, Thy only crown! 
O Sacred Head, what glory, 

What bliss, till now, was Thine! 
Yet, though despised and gory, 
I joy to call Thee mine. 

2 How art Thou pale with anguish, 

With sore abuse and scorn! 
How does that visage languish, 

Which once was bright as morn! 
What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered, 

Was all for sinners' gain; 
Mine, mine was the transgression, 

But Thine the deadly pain. 

3 Lo, here I fall, my Saviour! 

'Tis I deserve Thy place! 
Look on me with Thy favor. 

Vouchsafe to nif Thy grace. 
Receive mo, my Redeemer; 

My Shepherd, make me Thine! 
Of every good the Fountain, 

Thou art the Spring of mine! 

48 



What language shall I borrow 

To thank Thee, dearest Friend, 
For this Thy dying sorrow, 

Thy pity without end! 
O make me Thine for ever, 

And should I fainting be, 
Lord, let me never, never, 

Outlive my love to Thee. 



» Be near when I am dying; 

O! show Thy Cross to me; 
Lord, on Thy help relying 

Come Thou and set me free; 
These eyes, new faith reeeiving, 

From Thee shall never move; 
For he who dies believing 

Dies safely in Thy love.

Lent. 

WHEN I survey the wondrous Cross 
On which the Prince of Glory died, 
My richest gain I count but loss, 
And pour contempt on all my pride. 

2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, 

Save in the Death of Christ, my God; 
All the vain things that charm me most, 
I sacrifice them to His Blood. 



3 See, from His head, His hands, His feet, 
Sorrow and love flow mingled down! 
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
Or thorns compose so rich a crown? 



Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
That were a tribute far too small: 

Love so amazing, so divine, 

Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Sons of men and angels say; 
Raise your joys and triumphs high; 
Sing, ye heavens, and earth, reply,

Fought the fight, the battle won; 
Lo! the Sun's eclipse is o'er; 
Lo! He sets in blood no more. 



Vain the stone, the watch, the seal; 
Christ hath burst the gates of hell! 
Death in vain forbids His rise; 
Christ hath opened Paradise. 
Lives again our glorious King; 
Where, O death, is now Thy sting? 
Onre He died our souls to save; 
Where thy victory, O grave? 



Soar we now where Christ hath led, 
Following our exalted Head; 
Made like Him, like Him we rise; 
Ours the cross, the grave, the skiea. 
Hail, the Lord of earth and heavenl 
Praise to Thee by both be given;

Hail, the Resurrection Thou!

No tempest need alarm us,

And wraves shall o'er us tweep, 

Tlit- wild wind's sad complaining 

Shall lull us still to sleep; 
For, as a gentle slumber,

4 Then, Holy Jesus, hoar us, 

And keop us free from harm, 
Have pity, Lord, and bear us 

On Thy supporting arm, 
Should storm or calm befall us, 

Whate'er our lot may be, 
When all is o'er, — then call us 

Home, Saviour, — home to Thee.

JESUS! the very thought of Thee 
With sweetness fills the breast; 
But sweetor far Thy face to see, 
And in Thy presence rest. 

2 Nor voice can sing, nor heart can frame, 

Xor can the memory find 
A sweeter sound than Thy blest Name, 
I » Saviour of mankind! 

3 O Hope of every contrite heart, 

O Joy of all the meek, 
To those who fall, how kind Thou art, 
How good to those who seek! 

4 Rut what to those who find? Ah, this 

Nor tongue nor pen can sho* ; 
The love of JesUS, what it is, 
None but His loved ones know.

OUR God, our help in ages past, 
Our hope for years to come, 
Our shelter from the stormy blast, 
And our eternal home! 

2 Under the shadow of Thy throne 

Thy saints have dwelt secure; 
Sufficient is Thine arm alone, 
And our defence is sure. 

3 Before the hills in order stood, 

Or earth received her frame, 

From everlasting Thou art God, 

To endless years the same. 

4 A thousand ages in Thy sight 

Are like an evening gone, 
Short as the watch that ends the night, 
Before the rising sun. 

B Time, like an ever-rolling stream, 
Hears all it ^ sons away; 
They fly, forgotten as a dream 
Dies at the opening day 

o Our God, our help in ages past, 
( )ur hope for years to rolne, 
Be Thou our guard while troubles last, 
Aral our eternal home!

THE King of love my Shepherd is, 
Whose goodness faileth never; 
I nothing lack if I am His 
And He is mine (or ever. 



2 Where streams of living water flow 
My ransomed soul He leadeth, 
And, where the verdant pastures grow 
With food celestial feedeth. 



3 Perverse and foolish, oft I strayed, 

But yet in love He sought me, 
And on His shoulder gently laid, 
And home, rejoicing, brought me. 

4 In death's dark vale I fear no ill 

With Thee, dear Lord, beside me, 
Thy rod and staff my comfort still, 
Thy Cross before to guide me. 

5 Thou spread'st a table in my sight; 

Thy unction grace bestoweth; 

And O, what transport and delight 

From Thy pure chalice floweth! 

6 And bo through all the length of days 

Thy goodness faileth never; 
Good Shepherd! may I sing Thy praise 
Within Thy house for ever.

Fix in us Thy humble dwelling, 

All Thy faithful mercies crown. 
Jesus, Thou art all compassion, 

Pure unbounded love Thou art ; 
Visit us with Thy salvation, 
Enter every trembling heart.

Into every troubled breast 
Let us all in Thee inherit, 

Let us find Thy promised rest. 
Take away the love of sinning;

Perfectly restored in Thee! 
Changed from glory into glory,

Till we cast our crowns before Thee,

From Thy riven side which flowed, 
Be of sin the double cure, 
Cleanse me from its guilt andpower.

Can fulfill Thy Law's demands; 
Could my seal bo respite know, 
Could my tears for over flow, 
All for .sin could not atone; 
Thou must save, and Thou alone. 

3 Nothing in my hand I bring, 
Simply to Thy Cross I cling; 
Naked, come to Thee for dress; 
Helpless, look to Thee for grace; 
Foul, 1 to the fountain fly; 
Wash me, Saviour, or I die! 

4 While 1 draw this fleeting breath, 
When mine eyelids close in death, 
When 1 soar to worlds unknown, 
See Thee on Thy judgment-throne, 
Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 

Let me hide myself in Thee!

ONWARD, Christian soldiers, 
Marching as to war, 
With the Cross of Jesus 

Going on before. 
Christ, the royal Master, 
Leads against the foe; 
Forward into battle, 
See, His banners go! 

Onward, Christian soldiers, 

Marching as to war, 
With the Cross of Jesus 
Going on before. 

2 Like a mighty army, 

Moves the Church of God: 
Brothers, we are treading 

Where the saints have trod. 
We are not divided, 

All one body we, 
One in hope and doctrine, 

One in charity. 

3 Crown and thrones may perish, 

Kingdoms rise and wane, 
But the Church of Jesus 

Constant will remain. 
Gates of hell can never 

'Gainst that Church prevail; 
We have Christ's own promise, 

And that cannot fail. 

4 Onward, then, ye faithful, 

Join our happy throng, 
Blend with ours your voices, 

In the triumph-song; 
Glory, laud, and honor, 

Unto Christ the Kin«; 
This, through countless ages, 

Men and angels sing.

JESUS, still lead on, 
Till our rest be won; 
And although the way be cheerless, 
We will follow, calm and fearless; 
Guide us by Thy hand 
To our fatherland. 

If the way be drear, 

If the foe be noar, 
Let not faithless fears o'ertake us, 
Let not faith and hope forsake us; 

For through many a foe 

To our home we go. 

When we Beek relict 

From a long-felt grief, 
When temptations come alluring, 
Make us patient and enduring; 
Show us that bright shore 
Where we weep no more.

Till our rest be won;

Still support, OOneole, protect us,

What His guerdon here? 
"Many a sorrow, many a labor, 
Many a tear."

What hath He at last? 
"Sorrow vanquished, labor ended, 
Jordan passed."

Will He say me nay?

Pass away."

With a look recall, 
Nor for fear or favor 
Suffer me to fall. 



3 Should Thy mercy send me 

Sorrow, toil, and woe; 
Or should pain attend me 

On my path below; 
Grant that I may never 

Fail Thy hand to see; 
Grant that I may ever 

Cast my care on Thee. 



2 With forbidden pleasures 

Should this vain world charm, 
Or its tempting treasures 

Spread, to work me harm, 
Bring to my remembrance 

Sad Gethsemano, 
Or, in darker semblance, 

Cross-crowned Calvary. 



4 When my last hour cometh, 

Fraught with strife and pain, 
When my dust returneth 

To the dust again; 
On Thy truth relying 

Through that mortal strife, 
Jesus, take me, dying, 

To eternal life.

JESUS, I my cross have taken, 
All to leave and follow Thee;

Yet how rich is my condition: 

God and heaven are still ni\ own.

Rise o'er sin, and fear, and care; 
Joy to find in every station, 

Something still to do or bear. 
Think what Spirit dwells within thee, 

What a Father's smile is thine, 
What a Saviour died to win thee; 

Child of heaven, shouldst thou repine? 

4 Haste, then, on from grace to glory, 

Armed by faith and winged by prayer; 
Heaven's eternal day's before thee, 

God's own hand shall guide thee there. 
Soon shall close thine earthly mission, 

Swift shall pass thy pilgrim dajs; 
Hope soon change to glad fruition, 

Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

From which none ever wakes to weep; 
A calm and undisturbed repose,

With holy confidence to sing 

That death has lost his venomed sting.

Whose waking is supremely blest; 
No fear, nor woe, shall dim that hour 
That manifests the Saviour's power.

Waiting the summons from on high.

Their cry goes up, "How long?" 
And soon the night of weeping 

Shall be the morn of song.

A MIGHTY Fortress is our God, 
A trusty Shield and Weapon; 
He helps us free from every need 
That hath us now o'ertaken. 
The old bitter foe 
Means us deadly woe: 
Deep guile and great might 
Are his dread arms in fight, 
On earth is not his equal. 

With might of ours can naught be done, 

Soon were our loss effected; 
But for us fights the Valiant One 
Whom God Himself elected. 
Ask ye, Who is this? 
Jesus Christ it is, 
Of Sabaoth Lord, 
And there's none other God, 
He holds the field for ever. 



3 Though devils nil the world should fill, 
All watching to devour in 

We tremble not . * B ftftl no ill, 
They ciniiot overpower us. 

SO 



This world's prince may still 

Scowl fierce as he will, 

He can harm us none, 

He's judged, the deed is done, 

One little word o'erthrows him. 

The Word they still shall let remain, 

Nor any thanks have for it, 
He's by our side upon the plain, 
With His good gifts and Spirit, 
Take they then our life, 
Goods, fame, child, and wife; 
When their worst is done, 
They yet have nothing won, 
The Kingdom ours remaineth.

Hangs my helpless soul on Thee;

False and full of sin I am, 

Thou art full of truth and grace.

Grace to cover all my sin; 
Let the healing streams abound; 

Make and keep me pure within.

Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host, 
Singing to Father, Son and Holy Ghost: Alleluia!

JESUS, Saviour, pilot me, 
Over life's tempestuous sea; 
Unknown waves before me roll, 
Hiding rock and treacherous shoal; 
Chart and compass come from Thee; 
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me. 

2 As a mother stills her child, 
Thou canst hush the ooean wild; 
Boisterous waves obey Thy will 

\\ ben Thou ,sa\ \st to them, "Be stilll" 
Wondrous Sovereign of the sea, 
Jesus, Saviour, pilot me. 

3 When at last I near the shore, 
And the fearful breakers roar 

Twixt me and the peaceful rest, 
Then, while leaning on Thy breast, 
May I hear Thee sa\ to DM, 

"Fear not, I will pilot thee!"

AT even ere the sun was set, 
The sick, O Lord, around Thee lay; 
O, in what divers pains they met! 
O, with what joy they went away! 

2 Once more 'tis eventide, and we 

Oppressed with various ills, draw near; 
What if Thy form we cannot see? 

We know and feel that Thou art here. 

3 O Saviour Christ, our woes dispel; 

For some are sick and some are sad, 
And some have never loved Thee well; 
And some have lost the love they had; 

4 And some are pressed with worldly care; 

And some are tried with sinful doubt; 
And some such grievous passions tear, 
That only Thou canst cast them out; 

5 And none, O Lord, have perfect rest, 

For none are wholly free from sin; 
And they who fain would serve Thee best 
Are conscious most of wrong within. 

6 O Saviour Christ, Thou too art Man; 

Thou hast been troubled, tempted, tried; 
Thy kind but searching glance can scan 
The very wounds that shame would hide; 

7 Thy touch has still its ancient power; 

No word from Thee can fruitless fall; 
Hear, in this solemn evening hour, 
And in Thy mercy heal us all.

SUN of my soul, Thou Saviour dear. 
It is not night if Thou be near; 
O may no earth-born cloud arise 
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes. 

2 When the soft dews of kindly sleep 
My wearied eyelids gently steep, 

Be my last thought, how Bweet to rest 
For ever on my Saviour's breast. 

3 Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die. 

4 If some poor wandering child of Thine 
Have spurned to-day the voice divine, 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin; 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 

o Watch by the Bick; enrich the poor 
With blessings from Thy boundless store; 
Be every mourner's Bleep to-night 
Like infant's slumbers, pure and tight* 

Come Dear and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take; 
Till in the ocean of Thy love 
We Lose ourselva in heaven above.

ABIDE with me; fast falls the eventide; 
L The darkness deepens, Lord, with me abide; 
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, 
Help of the helpless, O abide with me. 

2 Thou on my head in early youth didst smile, 
And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile, 
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee: 

On to the close, O Lord, abide with me! 

3 I need Thy presence every passing hour; 

What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power? 
Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? 
Through cloud and sunshine, O abide with me. 

4 I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless; 
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. 
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory? 
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me! 



5 Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes, 

Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies; 
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; 
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

Lead us, O Christ, our life-work done,

Uplift our hearts to realms on high; 
Help us to look to that bright place

Give our hearts to Thy obedience, 
Serve and love Thee best of all.

I HEARD the voice of Jesus say: 
"Come unto Me and rest; 
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down 

Thy head upon My breast." 
I came to Jesus as I was, 

Weary, and worn, and sad; 

I found in Him a resting-place, 

And He hath made me glad. 

I heard the voice of Jesus say: 

"Behold, I freely give 
The living water, thirsty one, 

Stoop down, and drink, and live." 
I came to Jesus and I drank 

Of that life-giving stream ; 
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, 

And now I live in Him.

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say: 

*'I am this dark world's Light; 
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise, 

And all thy day be bright." 
I looked to JeflUB, arid I found 

In Him my Star, my Sun; 
And in that Light of life I'll walk 

Till traveling days are done.

In accents meek and low,

My spirit fails and faints,

And all the martyr throng:

And they who. with their Leader,

THE Son of God goes forth to war, 
A kingly crown to gain; 
His blood-red banner streams afar; — 

Who follows in His train? 
Who best can drink His cup of woe, 

Triumphant over pain, 
Who patient bears his cross below, 
He follows in His train. 



2 The martyr first, whose eagle eye 

Could pierce beyond the grave, 
Who saw his Master in the sky, 

And called on Him to save; 
Like Him, with pardon on his tongue, 

In midst of mortal pain, 
He prayed for them that did the wrong;- 

Who follow.-, in his train".' 



3 A glorious hand, the chosen few, 

< >n whom the Spirit came, 
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew, 

And mocked the cross and flame. 
They met the tyrant's brandished steel, 

The lion's gory mane; 
They bowed their necks the death to feel; — 

Who follows in their train?

MOTHER dear, Jerusulem! 
When shall I come to thee? 
When shall my sorrows have an end? 
Thy joys when shall I see? 

101 



O happy harbor of God's saints! 

O sweet and pleasant soil! 
In thee no sorrow can be found, 

No grief, no care, no toil. 



' No murky cloud o'ershadows thee, 

Nor cold nor darksome night; 
There every soul shines as the sun, 

For God Himself gives light. 
O my sweet home Jerusalem, 

Thy joys when shall I see? 
The king that sitteth on thy throne 

In His felicity? 



3 Thy gardens and thy gallant walks 

Continually are green, 
There grow such sweet and pleasant flowers 

As nowhere else are seen. 
Quite through thy streets, with silver sound. 

The flood of life doth flow, 
Upon whose banks, on either side, 

The wood of life doth grow. 



4 There trees for evermore bear fruit, 

And evermore do spring; 
There evermore the nngels are, 

And evermore do sing. 
Jerusalem, my happy home, 

Would God I were in thee; 
Would God my woes were at an end, 

Thy joys that I might see!

OH, nay, can you sec, by the dawn's early light, 
What M proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, 
WhOM broad stripes and bright stars, through tin* perilous fight, 

O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? 

And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 

Qave proof through the night that our I lag was still there; 

Cho. — Oh, say, do.s that Star-spangled Banner still wave 

O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave? 

102 



2 On the shore dimly seen through the mints of the deep. 

Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes. 
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, 

As it fitfully blows, half conceal*, half discloses? 
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, 

In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream: 

Cho. — Tis the Star-spangled Banner: oh, long may it wave 
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave. 

3 Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand 

Between their loved home and wild war's desolation; 
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land 

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nationl 
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, 

And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!" 

Cho. — And the Star-spangled Banner in triumph shall wave 
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the. brave.

BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC. 

MINE eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; 
He is tramping out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are 
stored; 
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword! 
His truth is marching on. 

Glory, glory, hallelujah! 
Glory, glory, hallelujah! 
Glory, glory, hallelujah! 
His truth is marching on. 

2 I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps; 

They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps; 
I have read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps; 
His truth is marching on. 

3 He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat; 

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat; 
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet! 
Our God is marching on. 

4 In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, 

With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me; 
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, 
While God is marching or>.

OH, Columbia, the gem of the ocean, 
The home of the brave and the free, 
The shrine of each patriot's devotion, 

A world offers homage to thee; 
Thy mandates make heroes assemble, 

When Liberty's form stands in view; 
Thy banners make tyranny tremble, 

When borne by the red, white and blue, 
When borne by the red, white and blue, 
When borne by the red, white and blue, 
Thy banners make tyranny tremble, 

When borne by the red, white and blue. 

2 When war winged its wide desolation, 

And threatened the land to deform, 
The ark then of freedom's foundation, 

Columbia, rode safe thro' the storm: 
With the garlands of victory around her, 

When so proudly she bore her brave crew. 
With her flag proudly floating before her, 

The boast of the red, white and blue, 
The boast of the red, white and blue, 
The boast of the red, white and blue, 
With her flag proudly floating before her, 

The boast of the red, white and blue. 

3 The Star-spangled Banner bring hither, 

O'er Columbia's true sons let it wave; 
May the wreaths they have won never wither, 

Nor Its stars cease to shine on the brave; 
May the service united ne'er sever, 

But hold to their colors so true; 
The Army and Navy forever, 

Three cheers for the red, white and blue, 
Three cheers for the red, white and blue, 
Three cheers for the red, white and blue, 
The Army and Navy forever, 

Three cheers for the red. white and blue.

THE APOSTLES CREED 

I BELIEVE in God the Father Almighty, Maker 
of Heaven and earth. 

And in Jesus Christ His~only Son, our Lord; Who 
was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin 
Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, 
dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The third 
day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into 
heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the 
Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to 
judge the quick and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Christian 
Church, the Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness 
of sins; the Resurrection of the body; And the Life 
everlasting. Amen. 

THE LORD'S PRAYER 

OUR Father, who art in heaven; Hallowed be 
Thy Name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be 
done on earth, as it is in heaven; Give us this day 
our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, as 
we forgive those who trespass against us; And lead 
us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil; 
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the 
glory, for ever and ever. Amen. 

GLORIA PATRI 

GLORY be to the Father, and to the Son, and to 
the Holy Ghost: as it was in the beginning, 
is now, and ever shall be, world without end. 
Amen. 

DOXOLOGY 

PRAISE God, from whom all blessings flow; 
Praise Him, all creatures here be'ow; 
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host ; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
